19th century mixed metal ojime (slide bead for tightening the cord going from netsuke to inro) in a shape of standing Fukurokuju - one of the 7 Gods of Good Fortune, usually associated with longevity - wearing a robe and holding a branch with various gifts hanging on it. Excellent crisp work - see his delighted face and gifts on his back, gilding, beautiful patina. Signed TENMIN on a golden plaque on the back - this excellent metal artist is listed on p. 1087 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Height 3/4 inches.
